long last

Trying to buy a raincoat that ticks all the boxes is hard task. But finger-crossed i think i've found it. I love the material and the design. I wear a lot black so i was conscious that i didn't want to buy another black or blue coat. So this was ideal as this was stripy! Originally i bought this in a size 12, which fit fine but after pondering i bought a size 14, so then i can at least where thicker clothes underneath and layer it a bit. Which im glad as it makes it more versatile. Ive tried many styles at sea salt. Im only 5,3 and medium build. And this shape i think fits me nicely. The only thing i would say if it had an inside zippy pocket. I would of given this coat a 5 star.

Taylor-made jacket

I finally got this jacket on the third attempt with the help of the fantastic Seasalt customer service team and am absolutely delighted. I am a standard size 12 and, having read the reviews, was in doubt as to whether I should have gone for size 14. However, I decided to stick to my size 12 and I'm glad that I did. The jacket fits perfectly in the shoulders and arms - there is even room for a jumper. Size 14 would have been baggy. The colour is more vibrant than on the picture. The jacket is quite creased but the creases don't bother me as I know that wet weather will quickly smooth them out. Haven't tested it in the rain yet but Seasalt jackets and coats haven't let me down yet so I trust this one.
I am a very happy customer, thank you Seasalt.

Lovely coat, fabulous colour

Brilliant waterproof coat. I love the colour and have had a lot of compliments on it. I like the tail at the back as it covers my bottom! Also means I can sit down on a bench or out and about without getting a damp behind. Glad I got it at sale price as I feel that reflects the value, at full price I would say it was too expensive for what it is. It is a very thin coat, lining gives impression of warm layer but it really is just an anorak. Lovely big hood, great shape, just slightly snug under arms, but as long as I don't wear too chunky a jumper will be fine.

Badly creased jacket

Great coat but exceptionally badly creased on arrival, almost returned it, wish I had as it is now £45 cheaper !

It’s ok

Love the idea of organic cotton and doing a revamp of oilskins. But it is quite mumsy in cut and general look. Colour is lovely. Sure I’ll change my mind on a rainy day, which haven’t had yet, maybe nip next one into the waist more and lose the weird tail. Having said that, think you’re a brilliant British company, doing great things.

This is a lovely coat. However, it was extremely creased on arrival - badly folded and had been packed for some time. Hanging in the bathroom and holding a steam iron up to it ( advice from your customer service) did nothing. Fortunately, a friend who helps in a charity shop used their professional steamer which removed the worst of the creases.
This is not the first time I’ve had this problem with a Seasaltraincoat - the previous one was sent back. I do think you need to sort this problem out!

I received the above jacket this morning, and I am very disappointed with it. The measurement state 130cm which converted into inches is 50 inches. My bust size is 44/45 inches and this garment was very tight and the sleeves were short and also very tight. Sorry to have to say, but your measurements are total out and feel 5 inches different is really not acceptable.

Bought this for dog-walking in the rain. It's yet to rain but I love wearing it - light and stylish. It feels a tiny bit snug at the shoulders (hence the small-fit description) but otherwise fits really well. Had loads of compliments about the colour, which is a gorgeous teal blue.

Not waterproof

Loved the look of this coat and got it as a birthday present for dog walking. Comfortable and stylish but the first time I wore it the rain soaked through to the lining across shoulders and on sleeves ,guess it is only showerproof .

I love my new coat!

My new coat is great, it's such a flattering cut with a lovely big hood so I feel totally protected when it rains and I love the long bit at the back, for when it's raining and the way it looks. I've also had loads of compliments on it so am delighted about that!
